surge. fugate gave us his concern this morning. >> now with the blizzard in west virginia, our concern is primary life safety and then we'll start getting to the critical infrastructure and we'll have power outages and the list of things is enormous. first thing is keep people alive, keep people safe and rescue those in danger. >> you just heard craig fugate mention west virginia, this is the view there. more than a foot of snow has fallen and higher elevations are seeing two feet and blizzard warnings are in effect until tomorrow. >>> let's take a look at ground zero, new york city last night. water everywhere where there is still a construction site there. new york was one of the hardest hit places and that's where we start with ann thompson live in battery park and how are things looking in the light of day, ann? >> reporter: just take a look at this. this is what people in battery park woke up to. this is a tree that was just ripped out of the ground by hurricane sandy last night. it was absolutely brutal down here. i can tell you the storm surge which hit a new record high almost

for president. the candidates are giving us a preview of their debate strategies now. president obama left a swanky resort where he is doing debate prep to deliver pizzas to volunteers in nevada. it was a break from what we hear he is working on including shortening and sharpening his answers. not his idea of a good time. >> it was very nice. basically, they are keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> mitt romney rallied in a crowd in denver. even though he's been practicing zingers, he tried to play down the need for a victory. >> people want to know who is going to win, who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make and there's going to be all the scoring of winning and losing. in my view it's not the winning and losing, the people themselves, it's something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america we would choose. >> i want to bring in john harwood and e.j. deion, author of "our divided political heart." thank you f

position which i think comes as a bit of a surprise to those of us looking at the national polls of being a close race but not with the president at this point looking like a losing position and certainly the opposite true of romney. he seemed to not want to get -- mix it up with obama, to stay above the fray. i think a lot of this was compensation for that awful first debate the president had when the roles were entirely reversed but it is probably difficult no matter how aggressive he was in the subsequent two to erase that position -- opinion he left in the first. >> over on the romney side in terms of strategy, do you think it was do no harm? maybe saying, look, foreign policy debate probably won't change debates unless i do something really stupid. >> i think what's happening here is the romney campaign is looking at the momentum thinking that, you know, they're on a glide path here and that their momentum will help them rise in the states. i think the challenge here is how do they get to 270? these national polls, you know, indicate momentum but really this is won state by state so

looked like he was having a good time. >> look, i have five boys, i'm used to people saying something that's not always true but keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. but that is not the case. >> president obama, meantime, seemed to hang back, subdued, the strategy seemed to be that when you're ahead, don't rock the boat. but he did try to pin mitt romney down on specifics. >> he says that he's going to close deductions and loopholes for his tax plan. that's how it's going to be paid for but we don't know the details. he says that he's going to replace dot frank, wall street reform, but we don't know exactly which ones. he won't tell us. he now says he's going to replace obama care. at some point i think the american people have to ask themselves, is the reason that governor romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they are too good? is it because somehow middle class families are going to benefit too much from them? >> let me bring in nick khristoff. let me read one of your many tweets last night, nick. obama is such a gifted speaker but tonig

the democrats tried use against them and campaign quickly issued a statement saying mitt romney is pro-life. what is going on with the romney message? >> well, i think romney is -- governor romney is definitely trying to pivot to the middle. we were waiting to do this last spring and early summer when he clinched the republican nomination. he's doing it now kind of on the late side. it is the same sort of more centrist message that we heard in the debate last week. >> clearly, this is sort of across the board campaign theme that the democrats pushing. listen to bill clinton in vegas. >> i had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did. i mean, i thought -- i thought -- wow. here's old moderate mitt. where you been, boy? i missed you the last two years. now the problem with this deal is the deal was made by severe conservative mitt. that was how he described himself for two whole years. until three, four days before the debate they all got together and said hey, man, this ship is sinking faster than the titanic. >> he did run it in the primary, mitt romney, calli

direction from last week. before we get to politics, i want to bring in meteorologist bill karins to give us the latest on the storm. bill, where sandy is taking a slight left turn, right? >> she started the turn. this is the amazing part of the storm, history-making part of the storm. what's incredible is this is still a hurricane towards the end of october, and not only is it still a hurricane, it looks like it strengthens before landfall. we have 10 hours to go before landfall. this may not be a hybrid storm at landfall. it may be a plain, old hurricane. look at what i'm talking about on the screen. i circled the eye of the storm. you can still clearly make out the eye, and there's new thunderstorms of convection firing up on the northwest corner of the eye. if that holds together to landfall, we will have a hurricane landfall. those are semantics. it doesn't really matter. that's for the history books. regardless, you have hurricane-force winds on the coast whether it's a hybrid or pure hurricane. winds gust to 60 to 80 miles per hour. we're entering that time frame where the power outag
